Performances and recording are admirable. Making this an attractive disc – undemanding, maybe, but by no means trivial
Gramophone

Anyone with an interesting music composed during the inter-war years should enjoy this very engaging disc. Caetani and his Melbourne players are most persuasive advocates, and the recording quality is wonderfully natural and clear.
International Record Review

Oleg Caetani and his down-under musicians give this hair-raisingly impetuous but always disciplined music the strongest possible advocacy… This CD is the best possible introduction to a composer who deserves far wider exposure
Fanfare Volume 2

After hearing this spectacularly engineered new SA-CD, I really do believe that Alexandre Tansman’s time has come…there’s no need to hesitate over Oleg Caetani’s performances
